How to add new NPCs, Items, Zones and Quests

From Drifter's Wiki

This guide shows a way to add new entries to the Wiki. There are other ways to do it. As an example, the guide creates the NPC with name "Lotus" in Aquifer.

    1. Search for the name to add. Eg. search for ”Lotus”. Note: open the wiki as a full page to see search icon on left column. Otherwise the search icon should be at the bottom of your page if opened in a smaller window.
    2. In the search result
      • If the entry already exists: Click the entry
      • If the entry doesn't exist, click the name (marked in red) to create a page
    3. Enter text in the main text area
      • Adjust the parts mentioned in brackets to specify a link to another page.
        • If the page doesn’t exist: That’s ok, it will be listed as a ”broken link” and can be created later.
        • If the page already exist: Make sure to use same spelling (case matters).
